thanks guys for the info.



do you have any problem running more than 2GB of RAM in your Asus M2N-SLI nForce 560 SLI ?

because I found this cons on the net about this MB


Cons: Bought two sticks of 1 gig mem for the board, got everything put together, and kept getting errors, took one stick out and everything worked fine. Found out the board only supports mem voltage of 1.90 max. Mem I was using was 2.2


Cons: Had to manually set everything for my ram, but thats expected.


Cons: Very little over clocking features in BIOS. Memory voltage only goes up to 1.95 volts so using high end memory is out of the question.
